What is the best natural sweetener for these Low-carb Chocolate Muffins?
My favorite choices are:
Xylitol: It’s a sugar alcohol that it’s found naturally in specific plants and contains four-hundredth less calories than regular sugar. Also, it’s a really low glycemic, that is nice for diabetes since it doesn’t spike blood sugar. This was the primary natural sweetener that I’ve ever baked with and i love itso much, simply it doesn’t leave an awful taste.
Monk Fruit Sweetener Lakanto): this is a brand new sweetener that I’m using and so far I’ve been really enjoying it. it has virtually no aftertaste and it contains no calories and no carbs, that is ideal for low-carb and keto diets. I used this one to create these chocolate muffins.
Swerve I really want to use this one, however i’ve heard the negative aspect of this sweetener is that it has some cooling sensation after you eat a treat made with this sweetener. It’s also healthy, natural and all its ingredients come from a variety of fruits and starchy root vegetables. Has no artificial sweeteners.
How to make Low Carb Chocolate Muffins With Almond Flour?
- First heat up the oven to 350˚F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners and set aside for later.
- Take a medium sized bowl, add the dry ingredients ( baking soda, almond flour, cacao powder and salt) and blend well to mix.
- Use another bowl to add eggs, monkfruit sweetener (honey or maple syrup) and melted butter and whisk to mix.
- Pour the eggs mixture into the almond-flour mixture, then really carefully stir well to blend it nicely.
- Fold in chocolate chips and divide the batter among the already prepared muffin cups.
- This is terribly important: fill in every muffin cup three-quarters of the way. It’s around 2 and a 0.5 tablespoon per muffin cup. The dough will be a bit thick, however it’ll work absolutely perfect. Sprinkle with extra sugar-free chocolate to your liking.
- Bake the muffins for 25-30 minutes, till the tops of the muffins are set and a toothpick inserted within the center comes out clean.
- Place the pan on a wire rack and let the muffins cool within the pan for five minutes. Gently pop the muffins out let cool for 10 minutes more on the rack. Enjoy!!!
